PULLMAN, Wash.- Washington State University and FSN Northwest announced today an agreement has been reached to televise the Cougars' Sept. 15 football game with Idaho, WSU Director of Athletics Jim Sterk said Friday. Game time for the Idaho contest has been set for 7 p.m.
'Having the Idaho game broadcast live throughout the Northwest is another opportunity to showcase our football program to fans and alumni throughout the region,' Sterk said. 'It is another indication that interest in Washington State football remains high, especially in combination with our previously announced television schedule.'
Four other Cougar football games have already been selected for live national or regional television, including the Cougars' season-opener at Wisconsin, Sept. 1, televised by ABC with a 12:30 p.m. Pacific kickoff. The network will also televise the Cougar game at USC set for a 5 p.m. telecast, Sept. 22.
